UNICEF USA's Global Cause Partners fundraising team seeks to enhance our existing diaspora funding strategy. It's a bit of a program/strategy consultation and a bit of prospecting/prioritizing (my team can help with that). We're looking for a consultant who knows the diaspora community well and the funding landscape. Has anyone in aasp ever worked with a consultant like this? Seeking referrals both for consultants you had good experiences with, but also places to advertise the RFP. We have a few orgs on our shortlist to post the RFP on including Apra, LinkedIn, Chronicle of Philanthropy, Foundation Center, AFP, AADO, etc. What are we missing?
RFP is below for reference to better articulate what we're seeking - or in case you might be interested!:
UNICEF USA (UUSA) Global Cause Partnerships (GCP) has initiated a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to identify qualified consultants (individuals or agencies) to support the organization in composing a list of prioritized Diaspora community prospects that have the highest potential and alignment to give to UUSA.
UUSA seeks further knowledge of and connections to Diaspora communities that could fund UUSA where we do not yet have established partnerships. The consultant will also have regular meetings to report on, receive feedback, and strategize with GCP fundraising and Prospect Intelligence colleagues. This project has four main components.
The final deliverable on this project is a comprehensive, prioritized list of prospects as well as synopses that include the rationale for selection and suggested practical next steps to connect staff to these opportunities.
We are seeking a consultant with the following qualifications.
Our budget for the part-time consultant is up to $20,000. RFPs are due by Monday, November 15, 2021.
